Make some noise with this homemade horn! Toot toot!
- A plastic bottle
- A balloon
- A rubber band
- A sports cap
- And help from a grown-up!
Carefully cut the bottom off the plastic bottle using a pair of scissors. Ask a grown-up to help.
Cut a small hole in the bottom of the balloon
Fit the sports cap into the hole you just made...
...and secure it with a rubber band
Stretch the nozzle of the balloon over the bottle
To play it, keep the balloon tight by holding the mouth of the bassoon below the top of the bottle. Now blow!
Different sized bottles make different noises! Try it with some other bottles, a cardboard tube, or anything else you can fit a balloon over. Have fun!
